This is one of the two preserved vessels identified as the Holy Chalice, which Jesus used at the Last Supper to serve the wine (the other one is in Genoa). According to archaeologists it was produced somewhere between 4th century BC and the 1st century AD in Palestine. Now it has its own Chapel in the Valencia Cathedral.

if you believe the folklore than this is the place, difficult to see as such a small object hidden at the back of the chapel and when a tour group arrives you'll be lucky to see it but it's worth taking a look whilst in the cathedral

church was amazing and the audio guide is a must to hear all about the church, museum was closed but overall there was loads to see for the entry fee of 5 euro, well worth a visit

It is 5€ to enter the Church but that includes an audio tour which I recommend. The church is so beautiful & grand, there are a lot of beautiful things to see. The room that the Holy Grail is in is quite large, but the grail itself is in a glass box upon an altar. You can still get a... More

We did the audio tour, well worth the €5. A breathtaking cathedral, beautifully maintained. I was quite surprised that we were permitted to take photographs. The Chapel of the Holy Grail itself is a gem. Unfortunately we were mobbed by a rather large tour group so couldn't get close enough to take any decent pictures. Will definitely go back!

You can barely see it because you're kept so far back and it's small. The church is nice and the chapel it's in is pretty, recommend doing it to check the box but not my favorite attraction.

We did the audio tour and walked around the chapel. I enjoyed learning the history of the church and seeing all of the relics. The Holy Grail is truly amazing to see.

While you can't get too close to the chalice, the display is nicely presented inside a beautiful chapel. The 5Euro to see the grail includes an audio guide and tour of the rest of the cathedral, which has other relics as well. While many may question the authenticity of the grail, it is certainly worth visiting and taking a moment... More

This is a beautiful chapel. The challis is well displayed, and the chapel itself is gorgeous. This is most definitely worth a visit. You can also learn the history about how the Holy Grail ended up here in Valencia.
